Library Reopening with Reduced Hours June 29th. Masks Will Be Required. Curbside Pickup Will Continue
The Conway Public Library Building will reopen to the public June 29th. The library requests that members of the public social distance as much as possible while in the building. The new hours for the library are as follows:

  • Monday -- Thursday 9:00AM --12:00 PM by appointment for seniors, immunocompromised individuals, and famillies. Contct the library at 603-447-5552 to set up an appt. or email us at info@conwaypubliclibrary.org
  • Monday -- Thursday 12:00 PM -- 6:00 PM for the general public
  • Friday 9:00AM -- 5:00 PM for the general public
  • Saturday 9:00 AM -- 1:00 PM for the general public

Occupancy for the building will be limited to 15 members of the public not including staff. The library requests that members of the public keep the amount of time spent in the building to a minimum.

Curbside pickup of materials will continue for the forseeable future and will be available during all open hours. We plan to change the location of the pickup to a slightly different spot but still close to the front doors.

For the safety of the staff and public, the library will require a mask upon entry. Masks will be available free of charge to those who do not have one.

About These Last Three Months . . . .
These last three and a half months have been challenging for the library and the Staff, as it has been for everyone. We are all "riders on the storm" as we try to navigate this new reality. We are looking forward to returning to some semblance of normalcy with reopening the building. I'm incredibly proud of our Staff as they have handled things with professionalism and grace. We hope to see you all at the library but from at least six feet away. :-) Sincerely, David Smolen, Library Director
